Leeds City Academy



A smooth transition into Secondary School life

We are very proud of our transition process at Leeds City Academy, and understand the big decision parents are making when the time comes to choose a high school. Our aim is to ensure that our new Year 7 pupils are secondary school ready. To do this we work closely with our feeder primary schools and have a range of activities and events that run throughout the academic year.


Dear Pupils Starting in September 2018, Parents and Carers

We are thrilled to that you will be joining our fantastic academy in September 2018 and we look forward to helping you to reach your potential.

We understand that during this big change as you move up to Secondary School from Primary you will have lots of questions.  There are lots of staff and friendly pupils who are always willing to help you to find your way around and know what to do when you arrive.

You will have several opportunities to ask many questions before you arrive in September as myself, or one of our transition team will be visiting you all before September. There will also be a dedicated transition day for you and your fellow Year 7 students in July. In addition to these visits, our doors are always open should you want to visit Leeds City Academy. Just contact reception to arrange an appointment to see one of our transition team who will be happy to help.

Please make sure you fill in your our admissions form here so we have all your details ready to start Leeds City Academy at Meet Your Tutor Day in September 2018.

Once you have started Leeds City Academy I am very happy to address any queries or issues you may have a note in the school planner to the form tutor is usually sufficient. Otherwise you can phone or email.

I look forward to meeting you all soon and welcoming you in September 2018 for the start of an exceptional educational journey!
